Matt Peake is a relative newcomer to the art of spoken word and now spends most of his time writing, memorizing and performing poetry. As such, he has little patience for petty distractions such as working, sleeping, buying food or paying rent. He served over a year as Assistant Director for the Tree Reading Series, as well almost two years as the Media Relations Manager for one of Ottawa's newest additions to the local poetry scene, Step Up Slam. Well-known for his twisted sense of humour and ability to turn the mundane into the slightly odd, Matt's first collection of poetry, Prototypes and Has-Beens, will be published this fall.
